(Note: Click on any thumbnail to see the image in full resolution) In an era when games like Tekken 3, Virtua Fighter 2 and Dead Or Alive ruled the fighting games genre (in terms of ryona as well) , most people didn't even pay attention to the gem called Kensei. But not this little gamer! Kensei remains in my top 5 favourite fighting games AND favourite ryona games even today, and I'd be remiss if I didn't share it with you guys. Being a PSX game, it obviously doesn't have the graphics of today's games, but its graphics were top-notch at the time and the polygons still look very beautiful. The framerate is also good, however that's only because this is one of the slowest fighting games ever made, making the player rely on strategy rather than reflexes. But for us ryona lovers, that counts as a definite plus as you can savour each move! And don't worry, moves like the backbreakers are performed fast enough for you to almost feel the pain along with the female victim! Ah yes, the moves, what has really drawn me into Kensei. There is a huge abundance of moves for each character, and each of them has quite a few grabs as well, including - get this- ground grabs for three of the characters (two of which are females and the other is a male wrestler perfect for male-to-female ryona lovers). No other non-wrestling PSX game has that many, and it's even greater how you can stay on the ground however long you wish, and that all characters have stomping moves! And between the great sound effects, abruptly fast attack animations and sheer innovativity on the developers' part, the Kensei fighters' moves pack a LOT of pain. Here are some examples to appeal to your ryona side : * Two of the girls can sit on an opponent as she's laying on the ground and start punching their face or sideribs respectively... forever! Or until they decide to show mercy and end it ... by applying a thunderous armbar! * David the wrestler has a lot of bone-cracking grabs as well as power moves, including a continuous quadruple powerbombing. But it's even greater how, as he initiates a grab, he holds on to the Victim and is then able to push her around switching among several positions, including throwing her down and up from the ground, as if she was a rag doll instead of a human giving her no chance to even whimper. And after this humiliation, he executes the painful move he had in store... gotta love this guy! * Ann has a move where she run-jumps on top of her (standing) opponent's head and violently stomps on it, until the Victim is almost crouching. Then she sommersaults upwards while kicking the Victim's face backwards, causing her to have a crouching lower body and pushed-back upper body. Then just like that she lands right on top of the Victim's head bringing it harshly onto the ground, not only applying pain to her face (which must be excruciating seeing as how the back of her head already hurts from the previous stomping) but also practically cracks her spine in little pieces. Ann stands there gallantly for a few seconds before casually getting off. * Cindy has a chain grab which is a real pain for her opponent's nether area. First she grabs her upper thighs from behind and drops her back, stretching her nethers wide open. Then she crouches in front of her and directly punches her nethers. And afterwards she grabs each of the Victim's legs as she stands up. Her opponent is now pleading her not to do it, but she cruelly rises her high-heeled foot and SHARPLY launches it into the Victim's nethers, causing her a visible amount of huge pain. The camera unfortunately doesn't focus on the downed girl's face, but it does focus on Cindy as she shows an expression of pure pleasure. I could ramble for hours more, but I'd rather stop here as I have to give you the links at some point! The game begins with 8 characters, but after unlocking them you get 20 characters of which 6 are female - not bad at all for a PSX fighter! So here's the link. You can use 7-Zip to unzip it - don't forget to insert the password located at the bottom of this box when prompted.

That's all from me, I hope I convinced to at least give Kensei : Sacred Fist a try - you will definitely not regret it. Have fun!
